    Interview

    UPS promotes from within. I expressed interest in management as a driver and was promoted from this position to full time management. The interview was conducted by the District IE Manager who rode on car with me for a full day to get to know me and ask a lot of questions. I also had to take an aptitude type test to measure my compatibility with UPS management.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at UPS.

    Interview

    I was contacted within a couple weeks. I met them at a job fair, so it's likely they had a lot of applicants to process. I was brought in for an in person interview where I was asked pretty typical questions. There was also a basic skills test with very easy math and problem solving as well as an aptitude test. Overall, not too bad. As long as you've done a few interviews before and have some decent experience or extra curricular activities you should be fine. Have examples of you problem solving, meeting goals, mediating confrontation, and leading. The aptitude looks for consistency most of all, you can choose what you will, but it has to be dead consistent.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a goal you met and how you achieved it.
      Tell me about a time you had a disagreement with a coworker and how you overcame that challenge.
       
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    None whatsoever, at the intern level, they have a set package. Time off and personal days are at the discretion of your manager and supervisor which could be good or bad.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UPS (Milwaukee, WI) in May 2013.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was very straight forward. Mine happened over the phone. Both an engineering manager and a H.R. manager were in the interview with myself. They asked the regular questions, such as "tell me about yourself." They were very pleasant and made you feel relaxed and comfortable.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UPS (Louisville, KY) in January 2011.

    Interview

    My interview consisted of 1 single interview which determined if I was to be offered the job. UPS has a policy of interviewing a minimum of 3 individuals and there were 4 individuals including myself selected for my open position. The interview was a panel interview lead by the department manager with department supervisors (potential bosses) present. 4 people total. Primary questions asked where 1. Describe my current experience at UPS thus far, 2. What were my future plans, and 3. What have I done to improve the operation or a system. The 3rd question was the critical one. After being selected from the group, the 2 key reasons I was told I received the offer was 1. because of my positive energy and 2. because of my response to what I have improved within my immediate operation(s) in the past.

    It was a pretty easy process.... This company is looking for employees that are educated.. it really doesn't matter in what.. If you have the ability to learn, you can do just about any job at this company. Working here has been a great experience... It's just like any other company.. when things are good the are good.. when they are bad they are bad.
